Comment: It’s always a good morning when President Trump upsets the apple cart. Yesterday the President Trump announced that transgenders will not be allowed to serve in the military. The importance of his message is two-fold. One, the military’s mission is to protect and defend the United States, it is not a Petrie dish for socialist gender affectation. Two, the President’s announcement puts the emotionally disturbed ‘water walkers’ on notice the military will no longer bend to the whims of the left’s agenda of social engineering….WFM
Trump: Transgender Individuals Will Not Serve in the Military in ‘Any Capacity’
By Katherine Covert, The Washington Free beacon, July 26, 2017
President Donald Trump made waves on Wednesday morning when he announced on Twitter that transgender individuals will not be allowed to serve in “any capacity in the U.S. military.”

Trump began the series of tweets by saying that after consultation with generals and military experts, “the United States government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. military.”
Trump said that the military must be focused on “decisive and overwhelming victory” and cannot be “burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption” that allowing transgender individuals in the military would cause.
After the ban on currently serving members was lifted, the Pentagon worked on a plan to admit transgender individuals into the services. Secretary of Defense James Mattis last month granted the Department of Defense a six-month delay while the Pentagon worked to implement the Obama administration policy.
